Smart(er) Ways to Enjoy Your Favorite Fall Treats

If you’re anything like me, you are obsessed with all things pumpkin related this time of year. And, if you are anything like me, you probably can’t go around drinking two pumpkin lattes a day and indulging in pumpkin flavored cream cheese (OH YUM). (It is a cruel world where the most delicious things are the most detrimental to your wedding/life diet).

So here are some HEALTHY-(er) choices to satisfy your fall cravings! Enjoy!


Skinny Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

Get a load of these Skinny Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies from Sally’s Baking Addiction.

Low fat yogurt, pumpkin puree, skim milk, rolled oats, and lots of smart ingredients make these delicious AND not *too* guilt-inducing.


Skinny Pumpkin Spice Frappe

Love the seasonal drinks from your local Starbucks, but hate the high calorie count? Try this Skinny Pumpkin Spice Frappe recipe from Peanut Butter and Peppers.

Jennifer’s recipe uses unsweetened coconut milk & stevia, and rings in at only 45.6 calories (including the whipped cream!) Compare that to the Starbucks Grande Light Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino at 290 calories! Incredible!


Oatmeal Pumpkin Spice Bread

Packed with fiber & protein, this hearty Oatmeal Pumpkin Spice Bread from Jenny at Fit Sugar looks AHmazing.

Slice me off a piece of that!


Pumpkin-Bran Pancakes

And finally, I’ve found the perfect way to start your fall weekend days off ~ with these Pumpkin-Bran Pancakes from Espresso and Cream.

Any recipe that ends with “top with peanut butter” is a winner in my book. Can’t WAIT to try these!

What are you favorite fall recipes, healthy or not?

P.S. You should definitely spend some time exploring each of the cooking blogs I linked up in this post, they are all awesome!
